This was a challenging picture to capture because the photo (posted by Altoon Sultan) was So Magical to begin with that I felt I was not able to improve upon it.
I did my best to showcase the miracle of the hummingbird, which always does feel like a miracle when I am lucky enough to see them. Their quick hovering usually makes my spirits soar.
There is not another encounter like it. Do you have a similar response to seeing a hummingbird?
Thanks to Ra and Sonya for giving me the opportunity to attempt to draw this photo!
